and skid marks. they have to map the scene. there are a lot of things they have to d to determine and recreate the scene. that could take some time. >> these two men have been friends for some time. they played college together. >> what about the reaction coming in tonight? >> a lot of news coming in. it is the second tragedy within the nfl. jerry jones the long time owner of the dallas cowboys released a statement earlier this afternoon and it reads i am quoting here we are deeply saddened by the news of this accident and the passing of jerry brown. at this time our hearts and prayers and deepest sympathies are with the members of jerry's family and all of those who knew and loved him. players also taking to twitter. the chief defensive lineman jeff allen tweeting this afternoon i
am still in shock. i don't want to believe it. rip jerry brown. ted de williams who played with dallas and is now corner back for the colts. the cowboys play tomorrow. the team was briefed about what happened. the team had arrived in cincinnati and when they got to the hotel they were escorted into the hotel. they did not stop to talk to any fans. obviously everyone traumatized by what they learned this afternoon. >> two promising lives one cut short the other changed no doubt forever. >> casey said it i mentioned it earlier as well. one week ago we were learning the details of another nfl tragedy. that's when kansas city chief linebacker belcher killed his
girlfriend before driving to the chief's stadium and committing suicide in front of the manager. two dash cameras showing belcher asleep outside of the apartment dmreks arou complex about 3:00 in the morning hours before he committed murder. police questioned him for several minutes checking to see if he had been drinking. officers say belcher was cooperative and told them he knew a friend in a nearby building. officers let him go because he did nothing wrong. on the second videotape showing an officer approaching kansas city arrowhead stadium the next day moments before belcher killed himself. >> looks like they are in negotiations. i need a ride asap. >> his fiancee was already dead. the two were parents of a new
born baby girl. she is now with family members. >> advertisers now putting intense pressure on a radio station that played a vicious prank. it is the lathes in a story that left the royal family in england a bit more exposed than it wants to be. the radio station made a prank call. a nurse took the phone call and took private information to the dj's. it aired live it was an embarrassment to the royals and maybe even dangerous. that nurse committed suicide. we now know her name. now is heat is on issuing a statement to the station's actions. the two dj's ripped their jobs indefinitely. the chief executive of the parent company say the dj's are
shocked still. he is advising no one two jump to any conclusions. >> during conclusions from what is a tragic manner i mean our main concern is for the family. i don't think any one could have reasonably foreseen this was going to be a result. i think the more important question is we are confident we haven't done anything illegal. they took the dj's off the air as i mentioned even with that nothing seems to be calming the outrage. shawn berry is a reporter with australia channel 7. how much pleasure is being put on the radio station? >> as the news of the nurse's death broke they immediately pulled advertising from the station and in a preemptive strike the they have suspended advertising on all of the shows
indefinitely until this all blows over. recently a shock jock on another station referred to the death of the prime minister's father saying he had died of shame. the backlash from that is huge. that station lost millions of dollars in advertisers and today the family is working quickly to stop that. they want to talk to these two dj's. it is legal to record someone's conversation without first getting permission but because it was an international call it's a bit of a flurry line. they are saying they had it before they ran it. >> the line may be blurried but the reaction to it is clear around the globe. we shared with viewers trying to speak on this issue diffuse some of the outrage. what are they saying publicly? >> publicly they are urging
caution. they don't think they did anything wrong. legally it was fine morally it's an entirely different question. they have counseling for those pair they are in absolute shock and devastation. they put employees to baby-sit them keep them away from televisions away from newspapers. the way their name is being described around the globe. this isn't going to go away from the station. although there is some decemb description that it will diego y monday. >> one of the things the hospital condemned the actions. any word from the royal family? >> the royal family has been relatively quiet other than to say they are worried and they
are praying for the family with teenaged kids and the husband. everybody is feeling sympathetic for the women. there's a lot of sympathy for this radio pair for what many see was a simple prank with an unforeseen tragic consequences. now the prank did seem harmless but the nurse was emotionally vulnerable and did a number of days later taken her life. the press condemn it had saying the radio duo has blood on their hands. hopefully they don't do anything silly in response to this. >> thank you very much. appreciate it. this developing now from egypt. it has to do with the investigation into the attack on our consulate in benghazi that left four americans dead including our ambassador there. new word of an arrest. authorities containing this man the ringleader of an egyptian
terrorist group. they are saying he took part in the september 11th attack. he was killed along with shawn smith, glen daughterty and tyrone woods. this arrest with wider implications. they believe this suspect was trying to launch a new wing of al qaeda. molly henneberg live from washington. what do we know about the suspect. >> u.s. officials have not had a chance to interrogate him yet. they have been tracking this guy for months. they intensified following the group attack in libya. akhmad about 45 years old is a former egyptian jihad member. he was released from prison in march 2011 during the arab string. he is the leader of the jamal met work and has been setting up training camps with financial help from al qaeda and yemen. he was trying to set up al qaeda

>> i am harris falkner. this is "the fox report." a dallas cowboy player charged with the death of his own teammate. josh prince is in jail for intoxicated manslaughter. police say 25-year-old jerry brown a practice squad player for the cowboys died a short time after their vehicle crashed early this morning. we have a picture of the nurse who took her life. they have not officially linked
the death to hthe hoax. they feel pressure from the people angry about how vicious the call turned out to be. a new warning from one of egypt's most powerful solutions. the military. we haven't heard from the military the political turn oil has been raging in the wake of morsi's power grab that is until now. the military with a word of warning now for everyone contributing to the chaos. we have details from mid eels. >> the military is warning of disaster truss consequences if the military crisis isn't resolved. in a statement they are urging dialogue to avoid a dark tunnel. last night protests turned violent as protestors breached the walls of the presidential palace. today the egyptian military began expanding the barriers around the presidential palace building concrete walls and
placing tanks and bashed wire arou -- barbed wire around the compound. morsi called for talks today from the opposition. they rejected any dialogue and refuse to do attend meetings today. they proposed a vote on a draft constitution on december 15th. they want that vote postponed. it is anti democratic and too islamic. late last night a member of the muslim brotherhood hinted that the vote could be postponed. it was a rare sign of compromise but the crisis is far from over. harris? >> just within the past couple of hours we are hearing new word out of egypt the president issue add new decree updating the lang rauj. there is some confusion over what that really means. it may be a move to inflate the
egyptian leaders opposition. ambassador thanks for being with us tonight. first of all what is your take on the possibility morsi changed the wording and the decree. it is the decree that started the turmoil it appears he rescinded that decree and replaced it with another one. it is not like there is a lot of sources to clarify this. my guess is morsi is trying to split the opposition to take care of some of the concerns of the judges who went on strike in response to the first decree. most important to placate the military. the military as you saw from that statement they issued earlier today they are troubled by the chaos in the street.
my guess is he is trying to get the military a reason to replace him. >> whether or not the military would get involved with the previous regime must barek and s it up quite a notch and make it more violent than it already seems. president morsi has already been on the watch for that. >> they want stability in the country. the their own interest of course. but what is going only on now tlents the stability of the state. what morsi wants to do a find a motive with a way of living. critically for morsi allows the constitutional referendum on
december the 15 st. to go forward. if that happens he fully expects that this sherry awe friendly constitution will be approved blocking him and the muslim brotherhood into power. there is a lot at stake for the next week. >> i want to move on from egypt to syria. there are thousands near turkey. then we learned that the possibility of weaponizing a chemical weapon inside syria was on the table perhaps bias sad a -- by assad and his regime. where are we now? >> assad that is given an indication that he is closer to being able to use the chemical we know upons. he may be trying to increase his
bargaining lev raj. he may be moving the stuff to a location that is better for his defensive purposes. when you combine this ingenls the west picked up with the gains that the opposition forces have made in and around damascus and elsewhere in the country it tends to indicate things are moving toward a conclusion. we thought that before that assad was going to fall. there are no guarantees. i think the dangers, the risks, the possibility that in an act of desperation assad might use the chemical weapons i think we have to be realistic about those. >> we have already said through our state department and the white house that that would be the red line if in a fact they did that that we would get involved in much more considerab considerably. before i let you go overall how would you characterize how we are doing there in that region of the world? where are we right now? >> i think we are doing very poorly. i think our influence diminished.
i think events are beginning to swirl out of control. i worry that it is not just the problem in egypt it's not just the problem in syria or libya or yemen or jordan but all of these are beginning to come together, and you can have an entire region prevailed and the iranian nuclear weapons pro bram. they are almost a bystander. i don't think our threats carry credibility. i am worried about our interest about israel about friendly arab regimes and what might happen to them in a very near future. >> i appreciate your perspective on this. thank you very much. nelson mandela is in the hospital for testing. the 94-year-old in frail health and has not made public appearances for three years now. mandela was in prison for nearly three decades for his fight
